Experienced Gardener – Live Out – EC3688

From English Country Gardeners

A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced gardener to work for an established company in the Reading area, Berkshire.  The company is celebrating 25 years in business, and offers a range of services in the green industry.

The ideal candidate will hold a recognised horticultural qualification and a good level of experience, have good plant knowledge, experience with a range of grounds maintenance equipment and will be used to working with common garden plants and features.  The role will predominantly involve acting as a mobile gardener and giving direction to less experienced gardeners on a daily basis.  A full UK driving licence is therefore essential.

You must be conscientious, well presented, able to work under your own initiative and have a positive attitude when it comes to directing others.  A good sense of humour is always beneficial, and the ability to be diplomatic when working with your colleagues is essential.

You must have experience with hedge cutting, lawn maintenance, pruning, planting, bed/border maintenance, and be willing to undertake other gardening maintenance tasks as they arise.  A spray ticket (PA1/PA6) is desirable.

The standard working week will consist of 44 hours, with any overtime paid at time and a half.  An hourly rate is offered which will rise after successful completion of a three month probationary period, equating to an approximate annual salary as stated below, dependent on experience.

If this position is of interest, please apply or contact Mark Read on 01233 733510 or mark.read@englishcountrygardeners.co.uk
